Passage through New York City - Photo Tour

Warning! This is a photo-tour of our trip on June 24th from Atlantic Highlands, through New York City and Hell Gate to Long Island Sound. There are dozens of pictures and few words. Enjoy!

Early morning fog on the mooring field.
Atlantic Highlands.

Verrazano Narrows Bridge - first of many bridges

The Lady

Junie, misty-eyed, passing the
Statue of Liberty. She has envisioned this moment for
a long time

Ellis Island

Crazy helicopter pilots flying around the Heli-pad

South Street Seaport

Brooklyn Bridge

Manhattan Bridge - this begins the bridge tour
- and this is the last one I can name confidently

Empire State Building

Not the Empire State Building

The UN

Current through Hell Gate.
It can run as high as 4 1/2 knots so timing is essential.
It would be a slow ride bucking the current.
We had a good ride hitting 10 knots SOG

One last look back at the city

Creepy house north of the city.
Used to be a hospital in the 1800's.
Abandoned now. 

Turning the corner to Long Island Sound!
